Approval Order Statement  
The cobas® KRAS Mutation Test, for use with the cobas® 4800 System, is a real-time PCR test for the detection of mutations in codons 12, 13 and 61 of the KRAS gene in DNA derived from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded human colorectal cancer (CRC) tumor tissue. The test is intended to be used as an aid in the identification of CRC patients who should not be treated with Erbitux® (cetuximab) or with Vectibix® (panitumumab) when KRAS Codon 12 or 13 mutation is detected. Safety and efficacy of Erbitux® (cetuximab) or Vectibix® (panitumumab) have not been established in patients whose tumors have Codon 61 mutation. Specimens are processed using the cobas® DNA Sample Preparation Kit for manual sample preparation and the cobas z 480 analyzer for automated amplification and detection.
